It is a pleasure and honor to announce my support of the 2010 Twestival, which will be happening on 25 March, 2010. People in hundreds of cities around the world will come together offline to rally around the important cause of Education by hosting local events to have fun and create awareness. Twestival (or Twitter Festival) uses social media for social good. All proceeds will go direct to Concern Worldwide to support educational projects. I was extremely excited for this year’s cause, because education is what allowed me to get where I am today.

The Twestival organizers have invited me among with other writers, artists, musicians, athletes, entrepreneurs and celebrities to donate items or put up experiences to for the Twestival Auction 140. I’m truly honored to be offering my very special experience up for the action among with stars like Ann Curry, Stephen Fry, Imogen Heap, Gary Vaynerchuk , Chris Brogan , Matisyahu, Ze Frank and Justin Bieber (!), with hope to raise as much money as we can for this charitable cause. I would like to thank the amazing makeup / hair artists at Dex New York and the renown fashion photographer Seth Sabal, who joined me in this effort in order to create this truly unique experience:
